Research fund created in memory of hawk found poisoned in Cambridge

Ruby, a red-tailed hawk found dead under her nest near Fresh Pond Mall in Cambridge in April, is being commemorated by the Ruby Memorial Research Fund at the Tufts Wildlife Clinic in North Grafton.

A love affair between bird-watchers and Ruby and her mate, Buzz, ended with the death of the red-tailed hawk whose remains were discovered by Cambridge resident Susan Moses.Veterinarians quickly linked Ruby’s death to rat poison, which was later confirmed by a toxicology screen in June.
